Coastal Risk

Coastal Risk contains information pertinent to shorelines and coastal areas subject to hurricanes, storm surge, flooding, and other natural disasters. Coastal Risk depicts the shape of the shoreline, name of the coastal water, and proximity to the nearest water body.


  • Identify assets within close proximity to shorelines to understand risk exposure related to storm surge, tsunami, and low lying areas especially prone to flooding (helpful if used in conjunction with Pitney Bowes Flood Risk).

  • Use the information to streamline underwriting workflows and price new business for profit.


  • NOAA Medium Resolution Digital Vector Coastline provides the coastline of the contiguous US.

  • Data is captured from 270 National Ocean Service (NOS) Navigation Charts and spans more than 80,000 nautical miles.
